Elder Naylor arrived at the MTC tonight.

Received first email from Elder Brian Naylor - Arrived around eight at night.  He is at the MTC and there are 7 others there with him.  Tomorrow his companion arrives.  There will be a total of 14 in this MTC.  He says that it is small and makes him feel more at home than the big training center atmosphere.  Had cheesy-thing, salad, and roll for dinner.  He met a a Korean man on the plane and he and another missionary gave him a pass-along card, which made him feel "pretty cool".  He is doing really well.  Sends his love to everyone. Please start writing if you get a chance.

On His Way

Brian left this morning around 7:30 for the airport.  When he arrived, there were eight to ten missionaries going on the same plane to Atlanta Georgia.  All of them were going to South Africa except one that was on his way to Spain. He was from England, he has been in the MTC in Provo for three week.  The other guys were all heading to South Africa.  Three of them were going to Cape Town with Brian.  Brian seemed very relaxed and at peace when he arrived at the airport.

At 5:25 our time he boarded his plane for South Africa and will arrive in the morning around 9:00 a.m. our time.  Brian looks so ready to start serving his mission.  Enjoy the airport pictures!!

So long Brian!  See you soon! :)
